Liar Liar

Other mistake: When Fletcher is attempting to force himself to write the word "red" on his desk, in the shot before the "blue" is revealed, his pen is not even touching the desk and his final pen movement is a curve which doesn't correspond to an exclamation point.

Suggested correction: He had already finished writing "blue!" by the time we see the shot of him holding the pen off the desk. He was probably making the motion of writing "red" (with the curve you see corresponding to the "d") not realizing that the pen wasn't touching the desk, and not realizing that he had already finished writing "blue." Hence his initial gleeful reaction-he thinks he's successfully beat the spell, until he sees the writing and realises he hasn't.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Fletcher drives out of the parking garage almost causing a car accident, you can tell it's his stunt double, because his stunt double is wearing sunglasses and doesn't look too much like Jim Carrey. Then it shows a back view of Fletcher speeding away and his sunglasses are gone.

Suggested correction: There are no sunglasses on the stunt double.

Continuity mistake: Fletcher checks his watch before he tells Max "It's 8:45". But in the last shot of the scene, as he hugs Max, his watch comes into view and shows 5:45.

Suggested correction: Watch shows 8:45 all the way.

Factual error: A minor only has a certain amount of time (typically, 6 months) to invalidate a contract entered into when such person was underage once that person turns 18 (or the age of emancipation in that state). This brings up a plot hole: If the marriage was not invalidated because Samantha Cole was underage, the prenuptial agreement would not be either, and Fletcher could not have used that argument to win the case, since he specifically states that she was seventeen at the time of her marriage.

Trivia: In the scene where Carrey is in the stretcher at the airport, if you look in the back of the crowd to the right, you will see Fire Marshall Bill from In Living Color. He can be seen when Carrey's ex-wife is speaking to the officer speaking on a walkie-talkie. (01:16:11)
